Inbetweens: Robot Animation

Boing Boing posted today about a robot dancing competition, and as I watched the video it started me thinking… Animation is currently redefining itself with new computer technology; and because of this, the job description of “animator” is undergoing big changes. Someday, perhaps people who read this blog will end up animating robots! It’s not that strange of an idea. Walt Disney pioneered the idea of computer controlled robots with the birds in the Tiki Room at Disneyland, and later with Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln.
